The festival at the museum begins with the process of sheep shearing demonstrated by a master shearer using hand shears as was done in early America. Included are demonstrations of carding, spinning and weaving; 18th century farm tasks such as wash day and soap making; children's crafts; an herb sale and a bake sale.

Springtime on an early American farm was the real beginning of the new year, the time when the cycle of seasons began.  It brought numerous outdoor chores after the long winter – preparing the fields, building fences, early planting… and sheep shearing.  Free refreshments will be served. No reservations are necessary.  The event is rain or shine.
